Good point. On some level, everything in the Medicus collection of 1939 World's Fair films is five stars for me, but I'm an amusement park and World's Fair buff. The stars, in my case, are usually just an indicator of how excited I was because of some oddball detail.

If you think it was so great, then why did you give it only 1 star?

Oh, I forgot, we really shouldn't pay much attention to the star system...
